The State Election Commission has not yet finalised the poll schedule for local bodies. A senior official said the Commission had only submitted to the Supreme Court that it would notify the schedule by the end of first week of December.

A month ago, electoral rolls, on completion of the delimitation exercise for the local bodies, were released. They had names of about six crore electors in the State.

The first round of checking of electronic voting machines is under-way, the official added.

Meanwhile, the ruling AIADMK has called a meeting of its Members of Legislative Assembly, district secretaries and other office bearers on Wednesday, November 6, at the party headquarters here to discuss preparedness of the party for the local bodies’ elections.
